Ricoh GW-1 vs GW-2 vs GW-3?

Can anyone clue me in on the differences between these wide angle converters? They all seem to be .75x and designed to produce ~21mm equiv. 35mm focal length. I saw on the website that the gw-1 is for GR I & II, while gw-2 is for GR III & IV, and I presume the gw-3 for the latest GR model. I expect the differences are in filter size? Any optical differences/improvements? Do we know if the GW-3 will be distributed in the US at some point?

Thanks guys, I know little about Ricoh gear, but am looking at getting the GW-3 for a Sigma DP1M.
